June 16, 2011

Geotextile-focused line will feature ProDyn technology

Bonar & Natpet will install a nonwovens production line at their joint venture facility in Yanbu, Saudi Arabia. The new line, scheduled to be installed in early 2012, will strategically be built near NATPET’s polypropylene production facility

The state-of-the-art, six-meter working width line will be delivered by Asselin-Thibeau. It will include, among its carding and needling equipment, the IsoProDyn and A.C.S technologies.

Bonar Technical Fabrics is a world leading producer of geotextile fabrics, both woven and nonwoven, with production facilities in Belgium, Hungary, China and Saudi Arabia. This will be its fourth line featuring the Asselin-Thibeau ProDyn system.


National Petrochemical Industrial Company (Natpet), is a leading company in Saudi Arabia with a brand new polypropopylene production facility in Yanbu. Natpet is a subsidiary of Alujain Corporation, an investment company involved in major industrial projects in the petrochemicals, mining, metals and energy sectors in Saudi Arabia.
Production of geotextiles for the civil engineering markets in the Middle East and the Indian subcontinent is expected to start in mid 2012.
